"Nadia Van der Merwe in Colour" (The Face of Cress

Post by WarnerPlum » Thu May 20, 2010 4:56 pm

Today I created another pastel drawing in the "Nadia Van der Merwe in Colour" series (Yes, that's what it's becoming!). This time, this is her as one of the twelve girls appearing in a pull-out calendar in association with Divestyle Magazine and Cressi, suppliers of professional diving equipment to South Africa and custom-made wetsuits. So here she is again, alluring as ever - or the closest I'll get to that.

And again, a few annotations:
  • 1. It came out a bit grainy, I didn't realise til then that's how my scanner does it.
    2. I haven't completely managed to make the colour look seamless... but.
    3. I'm not sure about how the face turned out... I wasn't really going for such a 'weirded-out' expression.
    4. It's smudged beyond the actual scene - but it suffices.
Again, if this is too racy for TAOM, feel free to lock/delete.

Have you thought about showing them to a professional. (except Cluedokid and Whitepawn of course)
